You don't know the whole story. This organization is run by Glen Taylor, and that should sum it up just enough. That organization, from an operations standpoint is just pathetic.

Let's see how you would like to spend your summer: A. BBQ, Going to the lakes, bike riding, golf, seeing your kids play Tball/soccer, boating, doing yard work B. Getting paid peanuts to coach a crappy franchise with a crappy name in front of 1000 people inside a crappy venue. I'd say he made the right decision.

...why Randy Wittless is still employable in the professional basketball, men's or women's. Wittman sucks, pure, plain, and simple. Do professional basketball players even listen to anything that comes out of his mouth? Maybe a rookie who was the very last pick in the NBA draft who is destined to play in some European league, but that's it. To the Lynx players I say good riddance. Any coach who quits four days before the start of a season is a schmuck of the greatest magnitude that you don't want to play for anyway.

I'm pretty sure he won't be missed in the least by many fans. His game management was horrible. The team could do better and will be better off w/out him. see ya donny. GO LYNX !!!!!! ... and for those of you who make the mistake of reading this article and taking the time out of your day to comment, good for you LOL.
